No new terrain shapes in the Oct 1 Haslab. There will be new terrain pieces.

New hex pieces would be nice. I like the 16 hex one above. I've often wanted a mirror image 24 hex to the one offered in master sets.

Also, is there is any thought to making large area flat hex surfaces? If there is, it would be nice to have them made of flexible plastic or mousepad material or some such. The Arena of the Planeswalkers puzzle cardboard mats warp. I still have and use my lexan water hex mat that someone created some time ago. It would be nice to build on a large shadow or lava base (or who knows what other kind of terrain you guys have planned).
large lexan water mat, I like that idea

Thanks for the invite! and thanks for your support. I am so excited for the future!

Re: Craig Van Ness Q&A Thread

In reviewing this thread, there's a few things that were mentioned over the last several years that are finally coming out.

Evil Raelin from 2016. It would be interesting to see how closely the current evil Raelin is to what was originally considered.

Again-

Thank you for this game and best wishes on your future endeavors with Soaring Rhino.
stay_golden_PONYBOY,
Thank you for the kind words.
Yes, we designed and considered introducing Evil Raelin.

Terrain Line for Hobby-
This terrain line could be almost anything.
I think a pack where you can just get more tiles would be ideal.

Also, theme packs.
More packs that relate to the current story.
So when we came out with Swarm of the Marro, we could of introduced multiple Marro structures and maybe ruined structures of a city in Valhalla that the Marro destroyed.

OG Heroscape collection completed on 6/21/2016.

The new collection begins...

I see, thank you. Looking forward to the new terrain pieces 👍

I do not know the answer to this question, but I will try to get an answer.
Thank you.

Re: Craig Van Ness Q&A Thread

During the initial design process, did anyone expect that the tournament scene that developed would happen?

Secondly, to encore a question that I didn't see a direct answer to (though I'm sure you can't say too much), any chance for more dwarf units? Crossbowmen, ram cavalry, etc?

Raelin has always been one of my favorites. Back in the day, we talked about her being a possible promo figure with just a repaint. Now, she is soooo much more. She is riding a manticore!

I think you will like what we have planned for terrain. This is just the beginning!

We were very excited to see so many tournaments popping up everywhere! I went to a bunch. Heroscapers drove the entire tournament scene. Colby did an awesome job running Gen Con events, and I would play the winner if I was there, losing most of the time, lol.

There is a dwarf in the Haslab offering. A long time ago, we designed an entire dwarf army. Maybe we'll take another look at the old designs...

Dwarf Bear Cavalry when?
